 Mgd Redefined: International Workshop On Meibomian Gland Dysfunction Report Available

The Tear Film & Ocular Surface Society (TFOS) reported the conclusions and recommendations of the International Workshop on Meibomian Gland Dysfunction (MGD).


The MGD Workshop, sponsored by TFOS, was conducted to provide an evidence-based evaluation of meibomian gland structure and function in health and disease. MGD is an extremely important condition, conceivably underestimated, and very likely the most frequent cause of dry eye disease.

The Report required over 2 years to complete and involved the efforts of more than 50 leading clinical and basic research experts from around the world.
